Important and very beautiful chiseled bronze mantlepiece with brown patina, the clock decorated in the round presents an allegory of the family. Its black marble base with steps and ogee is adorned with a torre of oak leaves and stylized acanthus. The candelabras have eight lights each in the shape of stems and foliage of reeds and their shafts are decorated with a young fisherwoman and a young hunter.
